Van Halen Fan Builds the Coolest Rat Rod Ever

Eric Christie has two passions in his life, motorcycles and rock music.  Last month, the California mechanic combined those interests to compete in an international bike building contest.  His magnum opus, a beat up 1972 Yamaha that he turned into a Van Halen themed racer.

He originally bought the rusty old rat rod for a $100, then transformed it with an homage to Van Halen’s “Fair Warning” album refurbished in the popular post WWII “cafe racer” style. All told, Christie spent about $1300 on the rebuild.  And it’s paying off.  He recently took fourth place in the The Deus Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off contest and is currently nominated for the People’s Choice award.  If you’d like to cast your vote for his rockin’ Van Halen inspired Yamaha, here’s the link.
